Abstract

The work that is presented collects a small sample of older people who participated in a choral group, whose activity was interrupted by covid19. The activities of this group gradually recovered, as the contagions decreased. A series of tests were carried out on a small sample after having resumed musical activity, during the month of March 2022. After the significant increase in infections at the end of December 2022, musical activities were paralyzed and it was measured again with the same tests to the small participating sample in January 2022. The results pointed to the relevant need for musical practice, since the evaluations were much lower in the post test.
